Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday formed a special investigation team (SIT) to probe the rape of an 18-year-old woman, allegedly by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his brothers, in Unnao and the custodial death of the victimâ€™s father.
â€œThe SIT will go into the entire gamut of issues involved in the incident,â€ ADG (Law and Order) Anand Kumar told a press conference.
Earlier today, Atul Singh, the brother of the rape-accused BJP MLA, was arrested in Unnao. The BJP MLA has rejected the charge as a conspiracy by his opponents. The ADG also said that so far clean chit had not been given to anyone in the matter.
The victimâ€™s father yesterday died in custody in Unnao, prompting her to charge that he was killed inside jail at the behest of the lawmaker.
